On May 15, Smirnoff will remix South Africa in a ground-breaking mashup of culture and music. The world’s biggest DJ/producer, Tiësto will collaborate with South African rock band BLK JKS — named ‘Africa’s best new band’ by Rolling Stone magazine — for a legendary live performance inside an airport hangar when the Smirnoff Experience™ lands in Johannesburg. In addition to the live performance, the two have come together to create an exclusive track which is available for download exclusively from Smirnoff.
“The concept of mixing and remixing music genres and cultures is something that continues to inspire me. The chance to collaborate with BLK JKS, the most exciting new band from South Africa, is something I might not have done were it not for Smirnoff asking me to be part of the Smirnoff Experience™ in South Africa. I’m really excited to share the new track we’re making and the live show with the entire world.” -Tiësto
The Tiësto and BLK JKS collaboration and Smirnoff Experience™ is the latest installment of Smirnoff’s BE THERE events—a program encouraging others to create, seek out and participate in one-of-a-kind experiences.
